I am Alexis and I currently work at a daycare, and have been for the past two years! I have child care experience starting at ages 3 months through 12 years. I love what I do and truly enjoy being around children. The reason I want to nanny is because I want a change of pace to be work with kids in a smaller more personalized setting. I am very engaged and always try to be as active as I possibly can with the kids!

Hi! I'm Zoe, a high school senior in Park Ridge, IL. I've been babysitting kids in and round my block for around 5 years, and really like spending time with them! Recently, they've all seem to have grown out of the age group that needs babysitting, so I'm hoping to find a good job, here! I've always been the oldest kid on my block (that's full to the brim with children) so I've often found myself organizing games, deescalating disagreement, cultivating patience, or comforting someone if there are any minor incidents. A little about me- I'm in the marching band at Maine South on Saxophone, and really enjoy the art- be it music, literature, or paint. I often dye my hair fun colors, and get along well with pets, too. Please contact me if interested! I'd love to help out in your household :)

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Park Ridge, IL

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Park Ridge can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Park Ridge Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Illinois?
  • Do you have a Illinois driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
